See one of the main features of the renowned event at Takayama Festival Floats Exhibition Hall. The ornate festival floats pass through the city during the festival, in line with a tradition begun around 350 years ago. With the festival taking place twice yearly, the floats get displayed when not in use in this large hall. Walk between the carefully crafted floats, admiring the subtle differences in design between each of these 17th-century treasures. A short video explains the roots and traditions of the festival, helping to contextualize the respect and reverence with which each of the floats is treated.
